One Little Body

A soft fawn head
against my leg

A gentle paw
to tap my hand

The softest fur
beneath my hand

A graceful tail
greeting me home

A cold wet nose
in early morn

A warm little tongue
that licks my foot

And two golden eyes
to see my heart

All in one perfect body
that I call my dog


  1. Arghhh very sweet. I'd like to write something similar about my cockatoo but I'm not sure I could be so nice about someone who has bitten through most of my dining table ;0)

  2. What a great tribute! Your dog is lucky to have you as her momma.

  3. What a lovely poem, did you write it yourself ?
    I like it very much !
    The photo is very beautiful too....

  4. That was so endearing....very beautiful picture too.
    Love, A

  5. Yes, all the poetry I put on the blog is written by me! :)
